ab80729 recognizes Plastin L in a Ca2+ independent fashion but does not react with T- or I- Plastin.
We have data to indicate that this antibody may not cross react with Mouse. However, this has not been conclusively tested and expression levels may vary in certain cell lines/tissues.
Human polymorphonuclear neutrophils and monocytes, MCF-7, Jurkat cells.

Use at 2 µg/mg of lysate.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Fixed in methanol or 3% paraformaldehyde. Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Actin-binding protein. Plays a role in the activation of T-cells in response to costimulation through TCR/CD3 and CD2 or CD28. Modulates the cell surface expression of IL2RA/CD25 and CD69.
Detected in intestinal microvilli, hair cell stereocilia, and fibroblast filopodia, in spleen and other lymph node-containing organs. Expressed in peripheral blood T lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, B lymphocytes, and myeloid cells.
Phosphorylated on a serine residue in response to costimulation through TCR/CD3 and CD2 or CD28. Serine phosphorylation promotes association with the actin cytoskeleton and targeting to peripheral cell projections. The N-terminus is blocked.
Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell junction. Cell projection. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Relocalizes to the immunological synapse between peripheral blood T lymphocytes and antibody-presenting cells in response to costimulation through TCR/CD3 and CD2 or CD28. Associated with the actin cytoskeleton at membrane ruffles (By similarity). Relocalizes to actin-rich cell projections upon serine phosphorylation.
